Queen's Mill Children's Word Fest - Make Words Count

Book into one of our exciting sessions with professional story teller author and illustrator Steve Weatherill. Younger children can enjoy listening to his Baby Goz story and then learn how to draw your own gosling through Steve's tutorial.

In the afternoon older children can get involved in life as a Roman and participate in related creative activities. The sessions are free but booking is essential. Call 01977 556741.

Please come dressed up, the theme is nature or Romans. Two prizes will be awarded, one at each session.

For toddlers and babies we will have a cosy reading corner. In addition, Queen's Mill will be running a poetry competition. Write your poem on the subject of Nature and bring it along with you on the day. Illustrate this if you wish. These will be displayed and a £20 book token will be given to the best entry.

Also pick up a novel from the book stall, have a dabble at adding a word to an ongoing scrabble game, or have five minutes doing word searches or crosswords!

Light refreshments will be on sale.
